Sefa Investment Days 2021
Do you want to learn more about investing? Do you want to know about the world of finance? Join us on the 10th and 11th of May at the Sefa Investment Days 2021 to explore your interests in Finance and Investing!
For two days, firms operating in corporate finance, trading, brokerage, and real estate will host cases, workshops, and presentations to give you an impression of the work they do. This way, you gain a unique insight into the day-to-day at firms such as ING or FlowTraders. We will finish the event with a networking drink where you get to connect with recruiters and students in an informal setting.
At the end of each event day, we host a fun networking activity. We invite all participants to pour themselves a glass and join the networking drink. During the networking drink, every participating company has its own online meeting room which you can join to meet the recruiters in a more personal and informal setting.
You have the flexibility to choose which companies you want to talk with, and you will be able to switch between rooms at any time. So, if there are particular people or companies that caught your interest during the workshops, presentations, lunches, and cases then the networking drink is your chance to connect!
